beautiful quote

The passage is from Marilynne Robinson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist:

"The ancients are right: The dear old human experience is a singular, difficult, shadowed, brilliant experience that does not resolve into being comfortable in the world. The valley of the shadow is part of that, and you are depriving yourself if you do not experience what humankind has experienced, including doubt and sorrow. We experience pain and difficulty as failure instead of saying, I will pass through this, everyone I ever admired has passed through this, music has come out of it, literature has come out of it. We should think of our humanity as a privilege."


  1. This post is so right - people so often look to escape difficult times - but walking through the difficult times is when we grow and learn the most. My family and I are praying for your family and Jedi. The kids and I pray for him daily during homescchool and we pray for him as a family before supper. Christ's peace and blessings to you.

  2. I love it! She is so right on!!!
